This week we talk about the Demon Barber Sweeney Todd, and compare the stage musical to the 2007 Johnny Depp film. Topics include questioning whether or not Judge Turpin is really that evil, the romance between Todd and Lovett, and whether less is more when it comes to the use of blood. It’s a bloody fun show!

The gist of Sweeney Todd
  • Mrs Lovett: Mrs Mooney puts her neighbour's cats into her pies
  • Mrs Lovett: wouldn't do in my shop
  • Mrs Lovett: just the thought of it's enough to make you sick
  • Also Mrs Lovett: we could put people in the pies though that's fine
